Survivor Support Group

 

Have you been affected by interpersonal violence such as sexual assault, relationship abuse, stalking, or harassment? Are you looking for a safe space to feel supported by peers who have had similar experiences?

SHARPP offers peer support groups for students who are looking to move forward in the healing process through discussion and creative activities. This group is completely confidential and we will not ask anyone to re-live their trauma.

Goals of the group may be:

  • Providing a confidential environment to talk openly and honestly about issues of interpersonal violence.
  • Sharing coping skills and self-care techniques. 
  • Receiving support from others who understand the impact of interpersonal violence.
Topics may include:
Creating community, managing feelings of self-blame, building relationships and trust after an assault, and developing self-care strategies.

 

SHARPP's support group for Fall 2021 meets weekly on Mondays from 5:30pm-6:30pm and will meet until 12/6. It is an open group and survivors can join at any point in the semester. If you are intersted in participating, please contact our Direct Services Coordinator at julia.lihzis@unh.edu
